My ex texted me yesterday telling me about a party at our friends house (which I already knew about & I'm sure he knew that I did too) then later after I didn't respond texted me "how are you"
We broke up last Sunday. I didn't go to the party & haven't responded but now I feel rude & immature.. I don't want to get into anything with him (he broke it off) but I do love him (always will, known him forever) so I was thinking of responding as "I'm sorry, I just can't"
Not sure what to do

No, it is not immature to ignore an ex. In fact, the best, quickest way for you to move forward and let your heart heal is to ignore an ex which is why you should block him from everywhere he can contact you after the break-up. Why lie to yourself about being able to be friends with someone who dumped you? You know you can't do that. It's very tactless for an ex to even attempt that because that's basically demoting you to a lesser position with less privileges from his life that you previously had. Who wants to be in that crappy position?
Just be honest with yourself about the fact that speaking with him, interacting with him, and seeing him is going to sting. You don't owe him a friendship. Block him from any place he can reach you so that you can focus on letting your heart heal and moving forward with your life.1
